"In recent years, Keith Oxman has become one of my closest friends, in a relationship reminiscent of my early musical associations with John Coltrane, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton, and others." - Curtis Fuller

"Keith Oxman is a young man of great consequence. He has learned to function with one foot in the present and the other in the future, while leaning quite heavily in the direction of the future." - Benny Golson
